Water Residential Assistance Plan Updates
The Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP) has had many program improvements that have been rolled out over the last year. The next phase of program improvements focuses on eliminating the administrative burden of the program on our member communities and expanding service delivery partnerships to increase utilization.
As this work is done, the program administration of WRAP for Oakland County residents will move from Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency (OLHSA) to Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency (Wayne Metro) in June of 2022. GLWA, OLHSA, and, Wayne Metro are working together toward a seamless transition of services.
As of June 1, 2022, new enrollments to the program should be directed to Wayne Metro.
Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency
Current WRAP information is also posted on GLWA’s website.
Households already enrolled in the program will be transferred over to Wayne Metro shortly. The team at Wayne Metro may be reaching out to discuss these changes with current WRAP clients.
